-earned tax dollars to go after waste, fraud and abuse, i introduce h.r. 1502 -- listen up -- the social security disability insurance and unemployment benefits double-dip elimination act of 2013. this bill would stop people from receiving disability at the same time they are receiving unemployment. under current law, a person can receive both disability and unemployment at the same time. this isn't right. just doesn't make sense. i don't know how someone can be able and available to work and also be unable to work because of a disability. i urge my colleagues to support this commonsense bill in order to help make sure the disability program is there for those who truly cannot work. president obama also included a similar proposal in his budget, and i look forward to working with the administration to get this bill signed into law. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from california rise? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman i

possessed in this country? and who would pay for it? would gun owners be subject to still more fees or taxes for exercising their second amendment rights? who would have access to the so-called registry? would the public know who owns guns and who does not? who would ensure that this sensitive information is protected and not used for political purposes, and how? we do not know the answers to these questions, but we do know that such restrictions will not prevent the next tragedy. we should not start down this dangerous road. what should we do instead? i have a few suggestions. instead of undermining the second amendment, mr. president, congress should focus its attention on three areas. first, i believe that robust prosecution of violent criminals is the best deterrent for violent crime. prosecutors should punish to the fullest extent of the law individuals who misuse guns, knives or anything else to commit violent crimes. there should be no leniency, mr. president, what ever for the commission of such crimes. secondly, we should examine and address any deficiencies -- and we have them -- i
